    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has proven to all players, that it doesn´t need Hollywood faces in the story to attract players, because it’s completely fine with its online entertainment. Call of Duty is definitely going to stay with us for a couple more weeks. [Issue#290]

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is really fun to play and the natural progression of the players is a fantastic motivator to keep on playing. I can really say that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 provides the best multiplayer experience in the franchise, and it’s not going to be a surprise when the next iteration is going to focus even more on this aspect.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the fifteenth iteration of a storied Call of Duty franchise, blends old and new to put itself in the upper echelon of Call of Duty games. Despite its lack of a traditional campaign, the game impresses in plenty of other aspects. The newcomer mode, Blackout, puts a fun and compelling Call of Duty spin on the battle royale genre. Multiplayer's boots find the ground again and take me all the way back to my fondest memories of the original Black Ops. Although it's not historically my favorite type of mode, Zombies really kicks it up a notch, with more maps and customization than ever before (not to mention even crazier Easter Eggs).

    Those who played the PC version of Blackout in the open beta already know that the PC version is not an awkwardly masked port, but a game that has been built entirely from scratch for this platform - from navigation through menu screens and gunplay to customization options that a PC player can expect.

    Deprived of its usual solo campaign, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 looks more like a patchwork than a whole, tight experience. Nonetheless, its multiple game modes, among which the first AAA Battle Royale, have enough to offer.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, in certain aspects, is a wonder to behold. The crisp animations, fluid movement, solid gunplay, and frantic action that has defined the franchise is here in its full glory. Losing the single-player campaign isn’t a big issue once you’ve tried and tested the different features the game has to offer. Treyarch made this bold decision, and Beenox followed through with creating a PC version from the ground up.
  7. 60
    Black Ops 4 combines all the elements of pop culture in gaming and the ease of access the franchise has always offered into one of the best Call of Duty games to come out in recent time. However, the AAA asking price for a minimized full title is slightly unnerving, as the game cannot and does not offer a full experience.

    Let me start off by saying I haven’t liked a Call of Duty since Black Ops 1. This one is fantastic. The multiplayer maps are really balancedLet me start off by saying I haven’t liked a Call of Duty since Black Ops 1. This one is fantastic. The multiplayer maps are really balanced and blackout is the best battle royale out there right now. In fact it’s the first battle royale I’ve actually enjoyed. The lack of single player was a little disappointing but you can tell the development team really made up for it by focusing on the expanded zombies mode and battle royale. Also would like to say it runs great on PC. I’m using a GTX 980 which is a couple years old and I’m getting a steady frame rate above 80 fps at all times. Would highly recommend this. Expand

Мультиплеер играется очень весело, но есть проблемы с балансом,Как новичок в серии Call of Duty могу сказать, что эта часть хорошая. Мультиплеер играется очень весело, но есть проблемы с балансом, некоторыми картами и с NetCode'ом. Battle Royal лично для меня - спорный. Для фанатов серии он понравится, для игроков, которые 24/7 играют в Battle Royal в других играх возможно понравится, а вот игрокам которые никогда не играли в Battle Royal будет трудно, так что им придется идти в Fortnite и только потом в колду ( :) ). Зомби режим по мне веселый. Убивать зомби так весело последний раз было в Dying Light ( такое себе сравнение). Для тех, кому не хватает нового Left4Dead могу по-рекомендовать этот режим. Насчет доната - в этой части в отличие от прошлых (как я смотрел по тому какой был донат) не такой сильно навязчивый, но его много. Батлпасс (или как его там зовут) после выхода обновления "Абсолютный ноль" проходится достаточно быстро, но когда вы донатите на вещь, которую чтобы получить только если задротить в игру - это странно. Также есть много ненужной фигни типо - эмоций, граффити, аватарок и конечно же ПЛАТНЫЕ ПРИЦЕЛЫ.
    Минусы:
    1. Баланс (в мультиплеере)
    2. NetCode
    3. Некоторые карты (в мультиплеере)
    4. Странный и во многом бесполезный донат.
    Плюсы:
    1. Веселый мультиплеер
    2. Качественный Battle Royal
    3. Веселый Зомби Режим
    4. Много контента
    5. Стиль игры

    This is the worst netcode i have ever seen in playing online games since 20 years. Either you are shot from behind most of the time, which isThis is the worst netcode i have ever seen in playing online games since 20 years. Either you are shot from behind most of the time, which is a game design problem. Or you shoot at someone and nothing happens, to just get killed by one bullet, to then see the Killcam and realize that from his POV you didnt even shoot once and he shot like 20 bullets and killed you. In every youtube video you hear ppl talking about how many bullets it takes to kill someone. But when I play, it does not matter which weapon it is, it ALWAYS seems and feels like I am dead with just 1 bullet shot at me... before I can even react to anything and shoot myself. Or I shoot nothing happens and then i get 1 bullet killed instantly. This netcode is the WORST i have seen in 20 years, seriously. Even with 62Hz, the netcode sucks monkeyballs! And then there are all those BUGS and crashes and errors all the time even after weeks. And multiplayer is just getting into lobbys that are 5v2 or 2v5 and already won or lost. So you either stay and you are bored to dead or you leave and queue again... at the end you are bored as **** because you queue queue and queue all the time before you even get any fair good round going. At the end you just join lobbys to level your stupid weapon to get a meaningless skinn for it. If you/your team wins doesnt even matter for nobody at the end, none cares too.
    I dont comment on Blackout, because I hate battle royal modes. It the most stupid thing the FPS genre came up with the last 20 years. But damn the netcode is so **** bad, it is unreal.

    I haven't seriously put time in a CoD game since Black Ops 2. I got this game for free with my new i7 8700k (and paired with a 1070ti), andI haven't seriously put time in a CoD game since Black Ops 2. I got this game for free with my new i7 8700k (and paired with a 1070ti), and this game manages to run inconsistently. Why am I running at 50fps on Militia? It's not just performance issues with this game, it's just not nearly as fun as it used to be. Why are all the interesting cosmetics exclusively for those who paid $100 for the game? Why is it that new maps and operators exclusive to the Battle Pass are being released a little over 2 months after launch? CoD used to be fun. Maybe because it was one of those games that you "play with friends" to get the most of them, but even with a few buddies playing this one, it still manages to get stale by the time you reach first prestige.

    This is the worst of the worst fps cod games in the history of man kind and any other known universe

    Do NOT buy this pieceee of **** and save you money for REAL fps games

    My humble comments below about the game:

    (BLACKOUT MODE) Its the first time in my life that i play a specific fps which you shoot the other guy in the &%% head with the sniper and he doesn't dies instantly BECAUSE of ''armor''. He must have armor forged from god and the seven dwarfs

    (MULTIPLAYER/BLACKOUT MODE) Its also my first time in my life that i shoot a guy and he still hops like a &%^$ immortal rabbit and he kills me with &$%$ hops

    (MULTIPLAYER MODE) The FIRST fps in the world ladies and gentlemen that the ''AK-47'' look alike future weapon requires a full magazine to kill the other player. And also the FIRST fps that you have a $%#& shotgun that shoots fire bullets which also the best shooting range that any sniper in all fps games.

    GOOD LUCK playing with the best game ever made!
